Fact Day

Good afternoon everyone, hope all is well with everyone, I am recovering nicely from my accident on Saturday. Well it’s Monday so that means it is fact day. Today’s facts are :

People who become hysterical when peanut butter becomes stuck to the root of their mouth are suffering from the condition “arachibutyrophobia”

My week

I slept late getting up till 8.20am as Tim was going to work. I dressed myself took ages of course.

It is a cool wet start to the day but ended up really warm.

Kelli brought Blain & Leo home, it’s nice to see her.

Leo came straight here when he arrived and hasn’t been to his own house yet.

Awake at 5.30 and up at 5.45, managed to dress myself only took 7 minutes if Tasha had down it, it would have taken 1 minute.

Tim is off this week, he hopes to get a few jobs done around the house.

Leo had to wear his grey track pants to school as his school pants were in the wash. So I made sure his school pants will be washed ready for tomorrow.

Tim had a Dr appointment he now is on an extra tablet for his blood pressure the same one I take for migraines.

Tim working on the spare room today.

It has been a really warm day.

Tim cut my hair then Tasha gave me a shower before bed.

Woke just before the alarm, up and dressed with Tasha’s help. I woke with cramps in the gut.

Tim had an appointment at the Royal out patience department with the ENT clinic. When I asked how it went all he said was ok.

Been a bloody hot day

Tim finished off the spare bedroom aka Leo’s room.

Tim thinks I should start wearing a wide brim hat to try and deter the Butcher birds. He will see if he can get me one tomorrow.

Mum wasn’t the best she said that the last few days she has felt very lonely with no one to talk to because on day I was distracted and not really with it. This made me feel terrible.

I woke at 5.40 but decided to wait for the alarm, however, a few minutes later I heard Tasha coming inside. She was frustrated because she had trouble unlocking the door.

Tim took all the cans and cashed them in.

It has been another warm day but not as hot as yesterday.

I started an online order for Big W but when I asked Tim if he would go and pick it up he said he would just go and buy the stuff this afternoon. Which he did.

Tim got me a black wide brim hat to wear when I ride the scooter.

I woke at 5.40 and got up straight away as I needed to pee.

Tasha arrived shortly after to get my breakfast,she said she will be back at 9am to give me a shower.

Tim went and bought me a new pickup tool so I can reach stuff I drop.

This afternoon Tim has gone to look at motorbikes, but no luck.

I am feeling like shit to day, depressed and wanting to cry for no reason.

By 3pm I was so tired I could barely stay awake.

A new day, got up at 6am just before the 6.15 alarm opened the house and while I was having my morning wash Tasha arrived.

Sandy picked me up at 9am and took me to see mum, I stayed about an hour, Tim picked me up and brought me home.

Today is the last day of term for school.

Blain has gone to his dad’s for the next 12 days.

It has been a very windy day

Jess putting me to bed.

Had a restless night my mask lost its seal so was making a lot of noise. It woke me at 3.40am so I went to the loo and found the cotton wool and blocked the leak.

At 7am I got up peed and rang Tasha to help dress me and take me to the pathologist for the fasting blood test.

It is a freezing cold morning.

Around midday I went to take Jess her milk but Leo arrived and took it, so I was parking the scooter and misjudged and hit the wall this caused the scooter to tumble over and me to fall and hit my head hard on the chair of the table this caused a lot of blood.

I yelled for help and Tim came and went and got Jess who sent Leo to fetch Tasha.

Jess applied pressure to the wound and after some discussion Tim rang the ambos who came and checked me over and decided I should go to hospital.

I was at the hospital for 3hrs and received 6 stitches. Tasha came and picked Tim & I.

We got home around 4.15 and I ate then went to bed.

I cannot wash my hair for 48hrs and need to make an appointment to have the stitches out next Friday.

Just another week

A nice sleep in this morning got up at 7.30 just after I woke up and at the time Tim was getting up.

Tasha had been and tossed a load in the washing machine. I got the finished load out and tossed the second load in to wash for her.

Found 99+ messages on the family message group on good old Facebook. Read/listen to them all a lot about the ball incident.

Turned out a nice day all round.

The start of another working/school week here in Newie, going to be another warmish day.

Leo’s driver drove down to the house as I wasn’t there and this is the first day of the new routine and I was just leaving the house to take Leo up.

Been a very warm day, Leo arrived home at 3.26pm only 6 minutes after school got out.

Tim’s youngest sister Diane who is intellectual disabled and has poor reasoning and is more like a child, has been arrested for refusing a Covid test in South Australia.

Seems she hooked up with a man who convinced her to travel to South Aus, they say she was groomed by the man who was arrested on paedophilia chargers.

We have very little to do with Diane by that I mean nothing.

A new day and I woke before the alarm again. I got up and dressed and found myself dripping in sweat even though it is far from hot.

Realised after Leo left that he didn’t have his medication, I forgot why I do not know. Brian picked him up at the door at 8.10 earlier then I expected.

I decided to try and switch the phone cords around to see if the cordless would work and it did. I am happy, I did have to get Jess & Tasha to come and help me.

Tasha & Jess carried on like children, tickling each other and acting silly.

I woke with the alarm and found Tim was up and gone he had a 5.30am start.

This morning at 8.10am I went to get Leo for school, narrowly being missed by the bird. Brian arrived as we were headed up the driveway.

Tasha brought be 2 cupcakes made by Blain they were very yummy.

It has been a bloody warm day and I am in shorts, had to toss out a pair this morning as they felt a bit loose.

A very short chat to mum as Dawson arrived home and was on the phone to his mum and this caused mum to become distracted.

Up before the alarm but not dressed as Tasha is going to give me a shower after Leo leaves.

Had a nice shower, and Tasha changed the sheets.

Spoke to mum for an hour or so she was feeling lonely. Half an hour after I hung up from mum she rang back to tell me that Michelle had rang her for no reason she said by mistake and they talked for half an hour about nothing.

It has been a very warm day.

Tim home at 2pm a short day for him.

Awake at 5.33am got out of bed at 5.45 as I was awake and generally don’t like staying in bed once awake. I managed to dress my bottom half before Tasha arrived, she did my top for me.

Tasha had to take Leo up as it was raining.

Stopped raining so I will be able to collect Leo this afternoon.

Didn’t have much of a chat with mum as Dawson rang twice and then Dave rang.

Leo has gone to Kelli & Jono’s for the weekend.

Another week gone

Father’s Day today and I have nothing for Tim as I have not been out to be able to go shopping for something.

Been a busy day washing, vacuuming and doing the weekly medications.

Mum rang and asked if I wanted to go over for lunch but I said no I really didn’t feel up to it.

I have been missing dad so much lately.

A new week and let’s hope it is a good one Leo is happy and rerady to start a new week of learning and fun.

Jess came over at 10.20 wanting to know where his webster pack was, I think I forgot to ask Tim to get it on Saturday.

Tim has an early day so he took the car into have it looked at im he doesn’t now how to change the setting so the lights don’t come on automaticly.

I was on the phone to mum when it was time to go get Leo so I asked Tim to let me know when the alarm went off and he forgot to tell me. I must have just mised him as I was there at 2.40pm.

Tim was told that the screen needs to be replaced for the reversing camera to work again and that will cost $2,000

I woke at 5.40am and decided to get up, however, I am not dressed yet as Tasha wants to shower me after Leo goes to school.

I did have a shower after Leo went to school, going to be another warm/hot day.

The umbrella Tim placed on scooter feel apart this afternoon.

Good morning Diary had a reasonably good night sleep. Woke at 4.40am but managed to go back to sleep till the alarm went off.

When I went to take Leo up it was spitting lightly and he would not let me go in the scooter in wet weather, so he went and got Tasha to go with him which she did.

A much cooler day back in light-weight long pants after 3 days of ¾ pants. Turned out petty cold.

I have been restless all day doing bugga all, little to no motivation.

Tim home at 1.45pm, so he was able to get Leo as it was wet.

Another day but not as cold a day as yesterday was. I woke just before the alarm went off just after I peed Tim got up and spent ages in the bathroom.

After Leo left I cooked boiled eggs for breakfast and just after I finished eating, I had a sip of drink and it went down wrong causing me to chock, cough and vomit a bit as well as wet myself. Had to get Tasha to come help me change.

Mum was good when I spoke to her she only repeated herself once.

Despite the cold I was sweating on and off all day.

Woke again before the alarm around 6ish, I was having a wash in the bathroom when the alarm went off. I even managed to partly dress myself.

Tasha got my breakfast and helped me get my top on.

Tim home just after 9am he is here till around 1.30ish when he goes back to work.

The cordless house phones stopped working so I turned the modem off and on again, twice and still not working.

I was told by Leo’s driver that from Monday Leo will go from being first pick up to last picked up, and from last drop off to first drop off.

Awoke at 6.10am but managed to stay in bed till 7.30 when Tim got up so I got up as well.

Kathy & the girls arrived at 9am so she could give me a shower.

Jess not working today and she said it feels odd not working.

Leo;s friend Katja came over to hang out for a bit

Kathy & girls came back as Syd had left her ball here. While here Syd was throwing the ball against Jess front door/wall and Jess yelled when she saw it, she was at Tasha’s place. This scared Syd and her mum smothered her as if Jess had done something to intentionally tried to scare her.


I am having phone problems my cordless phones since yesterday around lunch time and it’s so annoying. Our house phone aka land line now runs through the modem has none since we became connected to the NBN.

The NBN is a type of internet service here in Australia, which for so many of us suck with outages and dropouts

There is little to no point of complaining to Telstra as you get told to turn the modem off and on again and then you are told to disconnect the phone line and reconnect it, you also get told to disconnect the phone power line and then reconnect it. If that doesn’t work you get told you may need new phones.

It is so frustrating
